When I saw the Julep Maven Boudoir Collection for January, I knew I had to get a box. I could not decide which box I wanted, so I decided to upgrade to the Ultimate Collection that included the Resort Collection add-on which is coming separately.
The Cost: $19.95 a month, including shipping for a standard subscription, upgrades have an additional cost, depending on which upgrade you choose.
The Products: Each month, you get to choose the style profile you like the most. Julep Maven has a selection of nail polishes, makeup and/or other beauty items in each profile style. You can check out my Julep Maven reviews to see what you can expect each month.
Julep Maven Essential Cuticle Oil – Retail Value $18
I already have this cuticle oil, but you really can never have enough!
Nail Buffers – Retail Value $4?
I think these were an extra item? I couldn’t find any info on them anywhere.
Vanish Cuticle Softener & Remover – Retail Value $18
I tried this last night and it was really interesting. When I was pushing back my cuticles, the formula turned into this almost solid sticky form which scared me a split second because I thought it was my cuticle skin coming off!
Ta Da! Quick Dry Drops – Retail Value $14
I’ve been wanting to try these Quick Dry drops for ages now. I am thrilled to finally be able to have it in my collection. So far, it does it’s job pretty well, but I only tried it on the silk finish which tends to dry faster than the creme polishes.
Hope - Stark white satin
I am not a fan of my white Julep polishes because they tend to dry super slow. Since this is a satin finish, I am hoping it will dry faster, especially with the drops.
Farrah - Lilac silk
This color is so pretty on your nails! I am wearing it now and I cannot get over how much I love it!
Annemarie - Warm cocoa crème
This is not my favorite color. I am not the biggest fan of brown polish, but I am sure I can find some nail art I can attempt using this color.
Hannah - Sage crème
I like some green colors, and I think this could potentially be a nice Spring color, but again, it is not my favorite.
Mae - Soft lavender satin
I love Mae. I did a swatch of the color and I can’t wait to try it out later on my nails.
Noelle - Sandy beach silk
The finish is what saved this color. It isn’t something I would ever normally wear, but because of the finish, it makes it interesting enough to try out.
Mona - Storm cloud grey crème
I love my grey colors. I wear a lot of grey clothing, makeup and polish and have a running joke that I live my life in greyscale so this is right up my alley.
Abigail - Light peony pink silk
This is another favorite. I am pairing it with Farrah and they make such a sweet romantic duo!
Margot - Old Hollywood gold shimmer
I can’t say enough good things about this color. I love the vibrant gold and shimmer. It really is very glamorous!
Thoughts: This is not my favorite collection and a part of me wishes I did not get the whole collection and instead opted for only certain colors, plus the nail treatments. I do look forward for receiving the Resort Collection which I am sure will make up for some of the shades that were not my style here. The colors I did like in the collection I ended up adoring once I saw them in person!
